Ortiz: 'Nothing to lose anymore'

David Ortiz visited with Dennis & Callahan at spring training in Fort Myers, Fla., and in an interview that aired Wednesday morning talked about last season's disappointment and this season's optimism. Addressing his midseason turnaround last season, Ortiz said: "I had nothing to lose anymore. It could get no worse than what it was the first few months, and I just walked onto the field one day, trying not to worry about what happened before, and it clicked."

 

Ortiz discussed his future in Boston. "The Red Sox know what I am, even knowing what happened last year, I'm a guy that, I put a lot of enthusiasm into what I do," he said. "And it's up to them. I'm trying to say that I would like to end my career here, I would like to play three, four more years, and I would like to finish that with the Red Sox. It's up to them. I can't control that."

Report: Gonzalez seeks Teixeira cash

According to the San Diego Union-Tribune, negotiations between the Padres and first baseman Adrian Gonzalez came to a halt almost as soon as they started when the player's agent, John Boggs, gave the team a sense of what his client was seeking.

 

"Boggs said his preliminary discussion with Padres general manager Jed Hoyer was so superficial that 'you couldn’t characterize it as a negotiation,' " according to the article. "Boggs said Hoyer inquired as to Gonzalez’s expectations; that Boggs cited the eight-year, $180 million deal of New York Yankees first baseman Mark Teixeira, and that that comment effectively ended Hoyer’s exploration."

 

The two-time All-Star is under contract to the Padres this year for $4.75 million, and San Diego has a $5.5 million option on his services for the...
